HoTPCA is an organization dedicated to supporting the mission and work of the Peace Corps. Our events consist of service, educational and social activities designed to raise the profile of Peace Corps within the Austin community and foster a greater appreciation of cultural diversity. The core of all our activities is to fulfill Peace Corps Third Goal, “… bringing the world back home.”
Membership is open to all returned Peace Corps volunteers, family, and friends who reside in the greater Austin area.
Join us! There is something for everyone at HoTPCA. We welcome newcomers to become acquainted with our many activities. For more information, check out our calendar. To get on our mailing list send an email to our Mailing List address. Learn more.
